so far 169 students at gunn high are going to have to retake the a.p. biology and/or calculus exams because of the staff who administered the test. they sat students too close together. the college board realized the error when the school submitted the seating chart for the calculus exam. students sitting close together took the same version of the test which violates college board rules. the board investigated and found the same mistake with four other ap exams that will now have to be retaken. the board is still looking into six other tests. in its defense, the school district says gunn high has been using a similar protocol or seating arrangement for years. for students, the thought of having to retake the exam they spent so many hours studying for is stressful.
>> i thought i had a big weight off my shoulder and discovered some were invalidated. that was a big bummer for me. i was upset that happened. >> it was a very difficult message to send to students. i know how hard our students worked to prepare. >> so far, 700 people signed a petition asking gunn staff to answer he'll other exams and projects so students could have more class time to study for the retake. the principal says teachers are trying to lighten the load. retakes are scheduled for the end of the month, right before graduation. >> thank you very much. let's stay in the classroom. california is trying to change the face of history. at least when it comes to our text books. a state education panel will meet later today to consider changes amidst changing demographics. 2/3 of students in california

operation. in the last few hours, the french president called the egypt jet disappearance a crash but says it is too soon to speculate how that plane came down. at a press conference still under way in cairo, it is a passionate interchange between the egyptian defense minister and journalists trying to get answers. this man said the plane made a right turn to the left, a sharp right turn left and full 360 as it dropped from cruising altitude of 37,000 feet to 15,000 feet. the egyptian prime minister not using the word "crash" at this point on purpose, but says a terror attack has not been ruled out. here is the flight tracker of 804 as it traveled from paris to cairo. french president confirmed that crash. no confirmation where the plane may have come down. only that it disappeared shortly after the pilot told civil aviation authorities everything
was routine. folks are waiting for news. there are 66 people onboard. 56 are passengers. there were three air marshals onboard which is routine for this size plane. one child, two infants. all from 12 different countries. all waiting for news. it does not appear there is any american among them. greek civil aviation authority banned flights 40 miles around the last point of contact with 804. they are search buying air and in the water about 170 miles off the egyptian coast. this is a plane that has a very good safety record. the airbus plane, but at this point the french president says it is a crash. security analyst told nbc news that the current indication leaning toward some sort of abrupt incident as opposed to some gradual malfunction. everything is on the table, including the possibility this may be terror related.
kris sanchez, today in the bay. >> thank you very much, kris. as this story continues to develop throughout the morning, you can follow the latest on our website. head to nbcbayarea.com for up to the minute information. check out this bmw in the garage of a santa rosa house. police say the driver was traveling 100 miles through local city streets, eventually lost control and his car went through the yard of one home, kept going into the yard of another home and eventually slammed into the garage of the second home. this happened last night at franklin avenue and wright street. luckily nobody was hurt. the crash is still under investigation. it's 5:34 on your thursday morning. a man in a shootout with antioch police will be arraigned later today. 25-year-old mario serrano is expected to appear in court.
he is facing charges shooting an officer in the head. serrano allegedly attacked several police officers who were responding after he crashed a reported stolen car from pittsburgh. a renewed push to find a missing toddler. it's been over a month since her mother was found dead in a san francisco park. the family isn't giving up hope. >> we are optimistic that she is alive and well. >> the aunt of arianna joined san francisco police yesterday. a $10,000 reward is being offered for information in the disappearance of the 2-year-old. police are focusing on the people caring for the girl the day the mother disappeared. they initially gave conflicting statements and are now refusing to cooperate further. first on leave, now no longer on the force. that is the latest in the sexual
misconduct scandal. investigators are not releasing the officers' names or details about their allegations. sources said multiple officers had sex with a minor last year. tightening gun laws in the golden state. sweeping new gun control measures will be voted on at our state capitol. stephanie chuang with details on some legislation being discussed. >> good morning. we are talking about nearly a dozen gun control measures. some respond to mass shootings. you may remember last december two terrorists used semi automatic rifles that had detachable ammunition magazines in the shooting deaths of 14 people. one proposed law would close a loophole and ban the manufacture and sale of the assault weapons with bullet buttons that have rapid replacement of magazines. people who own them will be
required to register them with the state as assault rifles. governor jerry brown said it was too broad and far reaching. republican law makers warned that limiting access to firearms and ammunition criminalizes law-abiding people. up for vote are ten other gun control bills a ban on manages holding 11 or more rounds, loaning firearms to friends and failing to report lost or stolen guns. gavin newsom who is running for governor is pushing voters that they should push these measures in november.
live in san francisco, stephanie chuang, today in the bay. what the golden state warriors are accomplishing on the hard word. morning after thunder struck the oklahoma city. >> the game tied up in the late second quarter. doves went on. andre iguodala. 15 straight points in less than two minutes in the third. doves dominated oklahoma city. 118-91. >> i feel great joy. it's true. >> after the game, we are obviously disappointed.
we knew the chance for us to leave oklahoma city with a 1-1 split was right there. we had to take the game. >> the series' all tied up 1-1. game three is sunday night in oklahoma. >> that is a weight off steve kerrie's chest there. about the only blemish in last night's thumping happened on this sequence. the reaction from fans when steph curry went all out for a loose ball. he ends up in the stands no one in the stands tried to catch him, which was odd enough to begin with. one fan was having a good time taking candid shots. steph's elbow got banged up on that fall. he says he is okay. warriors' gm later joked if that same thing happens again, how about next time someone try to catch your prized mvp player? >> how do you do that? >> he looks 6'3".
>> come to mama. the sharks are back home after shutting out the st. louis blues 4-0. tying the series 1-1. the puck drops at 6:00. >> i'm hung up on the image of laura trying to catch him. let's get a lovely start to our thursday. >> such a relief to have cooler air moving into the bay area. summer lasted two days. now we are back to spring. heading outdoors in san jose. some clouds and mild temperatures this morning. sunrise happening at about 15 minutes. widespread 60s and 70s across the bay area. breezy and cooler tonight. sunset at 8:14. into the weekend, this cooling trend continues and we'll have scattered showers. i'll talk about that in a few minutes. >> this is by the truck stop
southbound with the head light. look at your map. it is southbound. the bay looks good. we'll zoom into this red section. 880 from dakota. the dunbar bridge cut-off. originally i thought it was a caltrans moving there working on the k-rail overnight. there may have been a crash. hopefully no one is injured here. chp has yet to tell us what is going on. there is the backup at the bay bridge. up next, donald trump creating a political firestorm once again. the word he used to describe former president bill clinton. i know not everybody is interested in the stock market, but are you interested in pizza? we can talk about pizza. a new federal grant should help
clear the way to keep california's high speed rail project on track. ==vo== a new federal grant should help clear the way to keep california's high speed rail project on track. the deal takes into account recent revisions that pushed back the completion date for the first leg of trk. it calls for $2.5 billion in
federal matching funds. the high speed rail's overall price tag at this point is now $64 billion. the revised high speed rail plan calls for that first leg to connect to central valley to san jose. in gilroy, the high speed rail authority will hold an open house to update where the project stands now. politics now and decision 2016. donald trump's campaign will meet with law makers on capitol hill after tossing out a bombshell last night. >> i'd say so. in an interview he brought up an old allegation against former president bill clinton. tracie potts live in wasngton, d.c., with all of the fallout this morning. >> yeah. trump made no bones about the fact he thinks bill clinton's infidelities and hillary clinton's response are fair game for this campaign. listen to parts of this interview with fox's sean hannity about some of the women clinton have been linked with in
the past. >> this is about exposure and in another case about groping and fondling and touching against a women's will. >> and rape. >> now, that allegation specifically from juanita broderick recanted. a spokesman says this is donald trump being donald trump, feeling attacks and licking his wounds. we probably have not heard the end of this. donald trump putting out there his 11 possible supreme court nominees. pretty early in the campaign to do that. the clinton campaign points out not one of them is a person of color. there are three women, all of them conservative jurists. >> no doubt a lot of people will talk about that conversation with hannity and trump. thank you. 5:46ju now. after weeks of delays, law makers moving forward with a
bill to help puerto rico manage its $70 billion debt. house republicans introduced the bill late yesterday. would create a board to oversee financial operations. more than 200,000 people left the u.s. territory in the past five years reducing the island's tax space. for lots of us trying to travel to exotic locations like puerto rico this summer, it's about more than shorts and sunscreen. there are going to be a record number of americans set to travel. today the tsa is getting an early start on the summer travel season. tsa says it is aggression recent staffing shortages that led to more than just long lines at some of the busiest airports like people sleeping out in cots at chicago's o'hare airport. leaders will demonstrate how prohibited items can impact wait times. >> federal government wants more information from alaska airlines about its purchase of virgin
america. >> scott mcgrew, you've got your virgin card? any chance the merger does not go through? >> this one will go through. last week a judge stopped the merger between staples and office depot. the justice department asked for more detail about alaska's plans. the second request. that delays the merger. had the doj not asked anything, the merger could have taken effect. the purchase of virgin america will combine two of the west coast carriers and that does raise anti-trust concerns. tesla will sell more stock. what we call a secondary offering, in order to raise more money to make the model three. we have said several times in the past, tesla did not have the funds to ramp up its production and it would have to offer more stock, which it just did. investors hate secondary offerings because when a company offers more stock, it dilutes
the existing stock. if i offered to sell you a slice of pizza for $2 and you and i understand by a slice i mean one of six slices of pizza, then i keep slicing that into smaller and smaller slices, you are not going to get very much pizza and mad you paid $2 for your pizza. which is why we expect tesla stock to slide this morning on the stock market. curious coincidence. goldman sacks rated tesla a buy. that might push the price higher. coincidence because goldman is one of the banks offering the secondary offering. goldman says the people who recommend stock and people who handle the selling of stock are two totally separate divisions and that is required by law. if we were to give goldman sacks the benefit of the doubt and could you debate whether they
deserve the benefit of the doubt. >> could be something fishy going on here. i'm disappointed. i thought we were getting slices of pizza. >> it's theoretical. we have to settle for milk. >> very different home invasion for a south bay family. 60 cows slowly barrelled into their backyard. can you imagine looking out the back window seeing that? a family in morgan hills is. these cows came from a ranch next door breaking through a wooden fence to where the grass really was greener. >> i look out the windows. everywhere in the backyard i see huge cows just reaching down, pulling up grass, pulling up plants, yanking them out at the root. it was shocking, devastating. >> move on over. the homeowners estimate the damage to their backyard to be a
couple of thousand dollars. rancher took full responsibility and is promising to cover the costs. >> the cows are taking over down there. >> watch out. >> no how now brown cow. it is really green grass there courtesy of all the rain we've been getting. >> it's slowly turning brown though. we'll see some slight chance of rain in the forecast this weekend. not looking at a lot. better than nothing. let's take a live look outside. san francisco starts out with clouds in spots. mostly clear. temperatures are a lot milder. this is what we can expect as we go through the day. feeling about average. as we drop in on the east bay, 54 in walnut creek. brentwood at 61. we already have a wide range of temperatures.

very hit or miss. it's looking like about 0.1 inch or less. in some spots more. maybe up to 1/4 inch. something we'll watch for your saturday afternoon plans. shout out to friends on facebook live. tune in by clicking on our facebook page nbc bay area. how is it looking on the roads now? >> looking great. looking at the bay bridge toll plaza. we see that about this time. no surprises. we are looking at green flow for traffic sensors along that peninsula. slower drives to the east bay. look at these sessions. altamont pass. we know about that one. going to zoom in toward 880 southbound. we still have a lot of slowing. this is a section where there was overnight work going on for the k-rail. they may be clearing, but there
may have been a fender bender. chp hasn't given us much detail. that flowing blends in with the slowing out of hayward. there is a slow drive toward the dunbarton bridge. this is your typical pattern for silicon valley. no delays. easy drive right now north of university. back to you. >> looking good. up next, a showdown over the death penalty in california. supporters coming together today to continue a conversation over executions in the golden state. first, happening now, we are keeping a close eye on breaking story overseas. a jetliner disappearing over the mediterranean sea. nbc news is devoting many resources to the egyptair story. we are tweeting updates with up to the minute information. you can watch a special report from nbc news. airbus a-320. the house of representatives

homeowners who legally rent out their place say abuse in the industry is hurting them. >> people buying up whole houses and converting them into short-term rentals. the people have no place to go. >> you're upset people are abusing the short-term rental system and taking away housing stock. >> yes. there is no reason for that. >> what is the city doing about it? we get answers in part one of our two part series that kicks off tonight at 11:00. if you have a tip, give us a call or send an e-mail to the unit at nbcbayarea.com. kris sanchez in the newsroom. monitoring the disappearance of egyptair airplane. one president is calling it a crash and another defense minister says it's too soon. a driver going 100 miles per
